Gutsy City traders to strip for cancer relief
LONDON (Reuters) - City traders are set to raise eyebrows by posing for a nude calendar to raise money for a cancer charity.

The calendar will feature 12 people posing naked but with their modesty preserved, the KatCanDo charity for colon cancer told Reuters.

KatCanDo, which was set up by Kate Coles in 2004, is still looking for more people to fill the slots.

"It's a very serious attempt to raise money," said Stephen Coles, the husband of the charity's founder. "It will be tastefully done."

Kate Coles was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2003 and died in March 2006.

Louise Dobson
The Olympic Hockeyroo's bum became big news when she posed naked beside … a pear. In 1999, the Shepparton girl decided to help out the local fruit industry as the Australian Pear Industry ambassador and by posing naked. She sat back to the camera next to a pear, and so came the criticism. "Sorry, Louise. Judged as a piece of meat, the guys at work have seen juicier," wrote columnist Andrew Bolt.
